On Wednesday it poured a good inch. The wind blew like crazy. It was cave-dark all day, but just before sunset this happened.
On Thursday a brief respite brought us this heart.
On Sunday, just before the rains began again, the sky at sunrise looked like this.
So, that's how things have been here. Our first rose of the season has bloomed. We have anemones, ranunculus and columbines flowering. The gaillardia are full of buds almost ready to blossom. I guess it really must be spring!
